Over recent years, there has been a growing interest in extracting information automatically or semi-automatically from the scientific literature. This paper describes a novel Ontology-based Interactive Information Extraction (OBIIE) framework and a specific OBIIE system.
We describe how this system enables life scientists to make ad hoc queries similar to using a standard search engine, but where the results are obtained in a database format similar to a preprogrammed information extraction engine. We present a case study where the system was evaluated for extracting cofactors from EMBASE and MEDLINE.
